    Francois Bayle – Vibrations Composees + Grande Polyphonie

    July 12th, 2008

    Francois Bayle - Vibrations Composees + Grande Polyphonie

    After visiting the late ’70s and late ’80s on Volumes 1 and 2 respectively, we jump clear back to the early ’70s on Volume 3. The sounds on these two pieces are largely derived from small acoustic, percussive and wind instruments along with Bayle’s typically accomplished electronic stitchery. “Vibrations Compsées” (1973) starts off quiet, spare and dark, then delves into more damaged electronic quirkiness for much of it’s 36 minutes. The instrumental sound sources become more apparent in “Grande Polyphonie” (1974), although a generous amount of electronics are still employed for some air-disturbing mayhem. While these may be some of Bayle’s most inaccessible compositions, that doesn’t give you any excuse to be afraid, because they’re still interesting to hear many more times than once.
